I think your work is kool. You definitely have your own style. I have a couple of your prints already. What I am waiting for now are those kool mugs you designed, they are a must have.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

Yes, I am working with Holden on 2 mugs and a shot glass. Not sure when they will be done. I will post some sketches when I get a chance.

In the mean time, I just finished the 4th in my "Mug Shot" series. Not all are tiki but thought you might enjoy.

"Satan gets busted"

"Tiki gets busted"

"Fluffy gets busted"

"Chimpy gets busted"

Thanks Sam, I appreciate the comments.

Satan was busted for, of all things, J-walking, go figure. He punched the cop in the knee with his face. At least that's the cops version of it. It's been a fun series to do. Not sure if I will do more, maybe 4 is enough.

Boy that must have been Some cat/monkey/cop/devil fight. Your imagination seems to have been spending time in the Swamps. I love it and the tiki is my favorite.

Man, your stuff is real good. I love the cartoony feel of your artwork, and somhow your colors are really vivid - even if they're muted tones.
Great work! Thanks for sharing!

I too saw this book at HukiLau and it was awesome, Killer, Unlike anything you expect to open up and see. Very entertaining and mind boggeling.I'm sure at that price he won't have many left. Don't you have more pictures to post Swampfire? I know you are holding out on us.

Thanks Polynesiac, I've never been a big fan of primary colors. I'd actually like to try some paintings with even more muted color. Just short of black and white. Might give it a real vintage feel. Like a hand colored photo.

Ben, thanks for the comments. The book is more impressive in person. Below is one of my more recent drink menus, titled "Grog List" the copy under the drink name is the drink recipe.

Swamp Fire-

You are one bad-ass artist! You are so good -I want to visit Zombie Cove and Mai Kai's!!!

Is there anywhere we can purchase prints of your work? I would especially be interested in those two pieces...
